first_imgEuropeans opt for firms over own businessOn 10 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Three-quarters of young Europeanswant to work for companies rather than go it alone, claims a report.Young Entrepreneurs,Europe’s Challenge for Tomorrow, claims that the proportion of 20- to24-year-olds who are self-employed has fallen to 4 per cent. In the 1990s itwas about 30 per cent.The report shows thatyoung Europeans’ willingness to be an employee is linked to the continent’seducational system as it prepares students for work in existing major companies.Jan Herin, chiefeconomist at the Swedish Employers’ Confederation, which conducted theresearch, said, “European governments now often emphasise the importanceof companies and entrepreneurship for their future economic and socialprosperity. “Despite this, itis mainly through initiatives from private organisations and companies thatentrepreneurship is encouraged and made a point of, both in society and in theschools.”The UK leads the wayin staff culture with more than 80 per cent of young UK people preferring towork for an employer.The study is made upof 11 employers with operations in 10 European countries, including the UK,France, Germany and Spain.www.eu2001.swedishenterprise.se Related posts:No related photos.

first_imgThe buzzer-beater was sweet, giving Golden State “a good vibe.”“Obviously I feel every one I take has a chance to go in,” he said. “Not really worrying about shooting percentages, just chuck it and see what happens.”Coach Steve Kerr challenged the defending champions to begin games better on the defensive end, which they did. Then the Clippers nearly came back with a surge down the stretch in what became an entertaining back-and-forth in the closing minutes.“It takes a full effort. It’s not easy to win an NBA game, it’s really not,” Kerr said. “It takes the full 48. We’re not there yet.”The Warriors led 104-93 on David West’s two free throws with 11:31 to play before a 9-0 Clippers run cut it to two.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandOAKLAND — The Clippers put together some respectable offensive statistics on Thursday night, but it still wasn’t enough with Steph Curry doing a number on their defense.Curry swished a beautiful buzzer-beater from way back early and hit another timely 3-pointer late on the way to scoring 44, and the Golden State Warriors returned from the All-Star break and had to hold off the Clippers 134-127 on Thursday night.Kevin Durant had 21 points and eight assists, Klay Thompson added 19 points, and Draymond Green contributed 13 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two steals.Curry shot 14 for 19, including 8 for 11 from 3-point range, in his third 40-point game of the season. Curry also had 10 assists, six rebounds and two steals. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The two-time NBA MVP made another 3-pointer just before halftime, then the Clippers’ Danilo Gallinari drained a 47-footer at the buzzer to get the Clippers within 70-58 at the break.“Steph was incredible as he always is,” Clippers guard Austin Rivers said.center_img Tobias Harris scored 22 points to lead seven Clippers in double figures. Gallinari wound up with 15 but suffered a bruised right hand in the fourth quarter, leaving the game with 5:10 left. DeAndre Jordan had 14 points and 14 rebounds for L.A., which had won five of six. Lou Williams, who had 50 points in a 125-106 victory over the Warriors at Oracle on Jan. 10, had 21 points and 12 assists off the bench.“A loss is a loss, bro,” Williams said. “No moral victories over here.”The Warriors are now 7-1 this season in the next game against an opponent after losing the first meeting.Thompson made two quick 3-pointers to become the 10th Warriors player to reach 10,000 career points in the regular season, and his first 3-pointer moved him past Joe Barry Carroll (9,996 points) for 10th place on the franchise’s career scoring list.Golden State lost at Portland before the break but improved to 13-1 following a loss this season.The Warriors, who shot 66.7 percent in the first quarter to take charge, have dropped back-to-back games only seven times in Kerr’s four seasons.TIP-INSClippers: Williams had a season-high 11 assists. … The Clippers shot just 11 for 31 from 3-point range. … The Clippers lost for only the sixth time in their last 19 games.Warriors: Center JaVale McGee earned his fifth start of the season for the Warriors and had six points and four rebounds in place of Zaza Pachulia. … Kerr spent four nights in Hawaii for the All-Star break with his wife and two of his three kids. … The Warriors had gone into the All-Star break with the best winning percentage the past three seasons until Houston held that spot this year. … Patrick McCaw missed his second straight game with a sprained left thumb, while Jordan Bell sat out a 13th in a row with inflammation in his left ankle.SHOOTAROUND NO-SHOWClippers guard Tyrone Wallace, on a two-way contract, had to fly into the Bay Area on game day. And the driver brought him straight to Oracle Arena, but the Clippers’ shootaround was not there.“I told him to just go lay on the couch in my office back there,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “The car took him to the hotel and he got there after shootaround.”ANALYTICS ASSISTKerr used the resources of analytics guru Sammy Gelfand throughout the break to determine the Warriors aren’t defending nearly as well in the first five minutes of games as they were a year ago.“Sammy Gelfand did not get an All-Star break,” Kerr said, explaining the biggest issue as, “We’re just not trying hard enough.”UP NEXTClippers: Visit Phoenix on Friday.Warriors: Host Oklahoma City on Saturday after the Thunder won at Golden State 125-105 on Feb. 6.Steph Curry extends the @warriors lead from way downtown!#DubNation 125 / #ItTakesEverything 118 with 1:47 to go in the 4th.📺: @NBAonTNT pic.twitter.com/K94Q6NuD6V— NBA (@NBA) February 23, 2018 “Our defense was not very good, but our offense allowed us to stay in the game,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “We had a lot of mix-ups down the stretch. … At the end of the day, it was an offensive game, and they just made more shots.”Indeed, the Warriors shot 63 percent to the Clippers’ 50 percent. The Clippers made 34 percent of their 3-point attempts, but Steph and Co. finished at 56 percent. Both teams surpassed 30 assists, the Clippers at 32 and the Warriors at 31.Curry let it fly from nearly halfcourt to end the first quarter, both his furthest 3-pointer of the season and first as time expired. Those have been his signature shots in recent seasons, so the sellout crowd went crazy.last_img read more
